Drug crop found in bedroom

POLICE in Morecambe have discovered a cannabis factory in a property in the town.
A number of cannabis plants growing in plant pots were found in the back bedroom of the house in Westminster Road. A quantity of dry cannabis and other drug paraphernalia was also found.

All the items were seized by the Neighbourhood Policing Team and a 26-year-old Polish man was arrested and given an adult caution for production of cannabis.

PC Richard Barr, Community Beat Manager at West End Morecambe, said: "This was a significant discovery and, although it was only a relatively small amount of cannabis being cultivated, hails another success in our efforts to reduce all drug activity in the West End.

"We are working tirelessly with different operations in the area in targeting street drug-dealing and any drugs activity in homes in the area.

"This has resulted in a number of successes in recent weeks.

"We would continue to urge any members of the public who suspect drug activity is taking place in their neighbourhood to contact the police."

Anyone with information about suspected drug activity is asked to contact Lancashire Constabulary on 08451 253545 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
